ou will no doubt be aware that the LTA, advised by the
government, has issued new guidance to all clubs with regard to covid-19. The main areas of change are to do with coaching and playing doubles.
Each club is told to take the LTA guidance as a starting point and to adopt or adapt this guidance as they see fit, and this is what HTC has done. Attached is a copy of the new set of rules that HTC has decided upon. A copy of this document will be displayed on the club outside notice board, and an updated LTA poster will also be on display.
We are issuing our document today to give you an opportunity to read and digest it, before it becomes effective at 8am on Saturday (6th June).
The biggest change for players is that doubles is to be allowed from Saturday, but there are conditions attached, so PLEASE read the attached document slowly and carefully in its entirety.
It has become obvious that previous emails have not been properly read, and/or rules followed, so in appreciation of the huge amount of work that Jayne Dempster has put in since tennis was initially banned, please do take notice of the information now being supplied to you.
Another reminder too:-
a) That you should always book courts before you play, and for no more than an hour (coaches excepted).
b) That you should always cancel bookings if you find for any reason you cannot use the court (no exceptions)
c) You should email Martin each and every time that you play with a guest, providing date, time, guest name and intended method of payment (£4 per guest per booking)
Many thanks, and enjoy your tennis in these slightly more relaxed times.
